Powers and Abilities

N’Kama is “the greatest of the Zulu warriors” and uses his great skills in tracking and stalking to hunt human preys for a fee.

He’s just a exotic extra, but feel free to raise his BODY by one AP and give him 20 more HPs to turn him into an actually competent fighter if that’s what you want.


N’Kama was part of a group of assassins from all over the world assembled by Damon Dran, the Indestructible Man, to capture the Black Widow as a part of an elaborate plan to destroy S.H.I.E.L.D.

Although they briefly managed to capture her, she defeated them all, except for the Iron Maiden.


See illo.


N’Kama does the noble savage prince routine. He’ll fight honorably (while he successfully ambushed the Black Widow, he purposefully missed with his spear instead of skewering her by surprise) and spend most of his time commenting on the skill and fierceness of pretty much any skilled and/or fierce opponent.

Your objective when playing N’Kama is to use as many metaphors and parallels containing African wildlife as you can squeeze in, and then add a few more. The rest of the time, hang around standing while holding your spear and looking proud.


“This one is more dangerous than a cornered lioness !”
